also. 
The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, 
June 22, 1908.' 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith to 
your Honorable Body an ordinance and 
accompanying plat for the construction 
of a certain spur track or switch track 
by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway Company across Division street 
and other streets and alleys on what is 
commonly termed Goose Island. This 
ordinance has been drawn by the Corpo- 
ration Counsel at my request and is sub- 
mitted for immediate consideration at 
the urgent request of the Commissioner 
of Public Works and the Superintendent 
of Streets. The reason for presenting 
this ordinance is as follows: 

The Department of Public Works and 
the Bureau of Streets find that their work 
is seriously hampered in disposing of 
street sweepings, etc., and in the receipt 
and delivery of materials used by the 
City, through lack of a spur track on 
Goose Island. At their request I took 
up this matter personally with the of- 
ficials of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. 
Paul Railway Company. In considera- 
tion of the right to cross Division street 
and certain other streets and alleys on 
Goose Island, the Chicago, Milwaukee 
and St. Paul Railway Company has 
agreed to construct and maintain on its 
own property, for the exclusive use of the 
City, the spur track desired by the De- 
partment of Public Works and the 
Bureau of Streets; this agreement to 
run for ten years or for the life of the 
right given to said Railway Company 
to lay down a spur track across Di- 
vision street for its own uses. 

Accompanying this communication and

the ordinance before mentioned is a let- 
ter from A. J. Earling, President of 
said Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway Company, confirming the terms 
of this agreement whioh are further set 
out in the ordinance transmitted here- 
with and made part of said ordinance. 

This agreement seems to me to be a 
very favorable one to the City, the De- 
partment of Public Works and the Bureau 
of Streets representing that they need 
this track as sooij as possible; there- 
fore, I would respectfully recommend 
that said ordinance be passed without 
the customary reference to any com- 
mittee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Fred A. Busse, 

Mayor. 



Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul ' 
Railway Co., 
Office of the President. 
Chicago, June 18, 1908. 

Eon. Fred A. Busse, Mayor, Chicago, III: 

Dear Sir — Referring to your sugges- 
tion, that this Company place the use of 
a spur track on Goose Island at the dis- 
posal of the City for the accommodation 
of the Street Department in disposing 
of street sweepings, and for the purpose 
of facilitating deliveries of material to 
the City: 

After a careful canvass of the situa- 
tion, it appears that this Company has 
no track which can be used expeditiously 
for the purpose specified, but it will, 
without cost to the City, furnish the 
right-of-way across its own property in 
Blocks 75, 83 and 81 of Elston Addition, 
the grade and material, and therewith 
construct a spur track as indicated by 
the lines in yellow color upon the at- 
tached plat, and will lease, at a nominal 
rental, to the City of Chicago, for its 
exclusive use, that portion of such track 
extending between the points designated 
on said plat by the letters "A" and "B," 



provided the City will grant the neces- 
sary authority to cross with said track 
all intervening streets and alleys be- 
tween points on said plat designated 
by the letters "B" and "C;" and pro- 
vided further that the City will grant 
to this Company the right to construct, 
maintain and operate a spur track im- 
mediately east of, and parallel to, the 
track first above referred to, as indicated 
by the lines in white color upon said 
plat, and such additional spur tracks 
connecting therewith as may be required 
from time to time for the proper trans- 
action of its business upon Blocks 75, 
81 and 83 in Elston Addition to Chi- 
cago; and to cross with such spur tracks 
all intervening streets and alleys. 

This Company will agree to maintain 
in good repair, without cost to the City, 
the tracks so to be leased to it, and I 
would suggest that the term of the lease 
and the duration of the grants above re- 
ferred to be made for ten years, and 
thereafter until the expiration of one 
year after written notice from either 
party to the other of a desire to ter- 
minate the same. 

This arrangement seems to be the only 
feasible one which we can suggest where- 
by the City can' be accommodated with 
the exclusive use of a track of this 
length, and with a track connection which 
will permit of in and out shipments in 
that locality on this Company's prop- 
erty. 

This proposition may be considered 
subject to acceptance within thirty days 
from this date. 

Yours very truly, 

A. J. Earling, 

President: 

Unanimous consent was given for the 
immediate consideration of the ordi- 
nance submitted with the foregoing com- 
munications, i 

Aid. Foreman moved to pass the ordi- 
nance.

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 
The Committee on Local Transporta-

Chicago, June 22, 1908. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in City Council AssemUed: 
Your Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion, to whom was referred the question 
of the elevated railroad transportation, 
having had the same under advisement, 
beg leave to report and recommend that 
the accompanying report of Geo. Wes- 
ton on the result of sundry conferences 
with officials of the various elevated rail- 
road companies be printed in the Jour- 
nal of the City Council. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Milton J. Foreman, 

Chairman. 
Aid. Foreman moved to concur in the 
foregoing report. 

The motion prevailed. 
The following is the report of Mr. 
Geo. Weston: 

Chicago, June 16, 1908. 

Colonel Milton J. Foreman, Chairman Lo- 
cal Transportation Committee, 100 
Washington Street, Chicago, III. : 
DEiAR Sir— The following is a state- 
ment of the results of conferences be- 
tween the Elevated Railroad Companies' 
engineers and the writer, representing 
the City, in discussing the "Weston Re- 
port" upon the Union Elevated Loop 
Railroad. 

First. As regards the increased capac- 
ity of the elevated loop, due to through- 
routing of cars between the Northwest- 
ern Elevated Railroad and the South 
Side Elevated Railroad; the extension 
of station platforms, and the relocation 
of some of the existing station platforms. 
The South Side Elevated Railroad Com- 
pany claims that the increased capacity 
will amount to 33 per cent. The Metro- 
politan West Side Elevated Railroad 
Company does not admit this increase, 
but has not introduced any estimate of 



June 22, 1008. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



647 



increased capacity due to the changes 
recommended in said report. 

Second. The South Side Elevated 
Kailroad Company objects to through- 
routing ears between its company and 
the Northwestern Elevated Railroad 
Company on the basis of losses that 
would be sustained from extra car 
miles that they figure would nec- 
essarily have to be run if trains 
were through routed. This is based 
principally upon their contention that 
the cars of each company should be re- 
turned to their own terminal when they 
are laid up — that they would not agree 
to lay up their equipment at the ter- 
minal of the Northwestern Elevated 
Railroad Company. They make the 
same contention as regards the train 
employes, that under separate operation 
employes must report on and off duty 
at their home stations. 

Third. The South Side Elevated Rail- 
road Company and the Metropolitan 
Elevated Raih'oad Company state that 
they cannot concede universal transfer of 
passengers between the elevated lines 
for a flat rate of fare of five cents. In 
support of this position, Mr. C. V. Wes- 
ton, representing the South Side Ele- 
vated Railroad Company, presented fig- 
ures based upon an average daily busi- 
ness of 125,000' passengers, or a total of 
44,625,000 passengers per annum, which, 
at a five -cent fare per passenger would 
equal .$2,281,200, and with operating ex- 
penses at 70 per cent, which includes all 
charges and the loop rental, would 
amount to $1,596,875, which leaves a 
net earning per annum of $684,375. Mr. 
C. V. Weston sets forth the following 
charges and interest on investments: 

Bond interest $ 360,000 

Rental of leased lines 96,000 

21/2 per cent allowed for depre- 
. elation on $19,972,445 (the 
present estimated value of 
the property) 499,311 



Interest on capital stock at G 

per cent 619,380 



Total $1,574,691 

This amount plus the operating ex- 
penses, would give a total cost of carry- 
ing 44,625,000 passengers of $3,171,566. 
The cost per passenger would equal 6.95 
cents. Mr. C. V. Weston claims that the 
present average haul of the South Side 
Elevated Railroad Company is 6.6 miles, 
consequently the cost per passenger mile 
would equal 1.05 cents and that this 
cost per passenger mile makes the limit 
of average haul 4.76 miles at a flat rate 
of five cents, therefore, Mr. C. V. Wes- 
ton contends that to pay operating ex- 
penses, maintain the property, pay fixed 
charges, and allow a 6 per cent return 
on the capital stock, 4% miles is the 
average haul that his company can af- 
ford to make for a flat rate of fare of 
five cents — that the present business 
that requires a haul of 6.6 miles is not 
sufficiently profitable and that they could 
not entertain a proposition that in their 
judgment would increase their losses. 

The Metropolitan West Side Elevated 
Railroad Company endorsed the state- 
ments made by Mr. C. V. Weston as in 
general representing the position of that 
company on the subject of universal 
transfers. 

The Northw^estern Elevated Railroad 
Company set forth its position as fol- 
lows: That it was ready to through- 
route cars and to give universal trans- 
fers, and that it was willing to do this 
considering the proposition under dis- 
cussion as a whole, that is, that with an 
increased capacity to the loop, through 
routing, extension of platforms and the 
building of an auxiliary stub terminal 
the advantages to be gained thereby 
would outweigh any loss that it figured 
would be sustained by through routing 
and universal transfer privileges. 

Fourth. Mr. C. V. Weston contended 
that greater capacity could be given the 
loop by the separation of grades at in- 



648

tersections, thus largely doing away with 
interlocking interferences and looping 
all trains. He claims that this method 
of operation will give the greatest capac- 
ity of any to the loop. 

Kegarding the 33 per cent increased 
capacity conceded by the South Side 
Elevated Railroad Company— this is 
hased upon the following factors:— Aver- 
age speed of 10 miles per hour on 
curves — allowance of 41/2 seconds to 
throw the interlock, and an interpreta- 
tion of the joint lease to mean— "num- 
ber of cars leaving the loop per hour, 
rather than the number of cars upon the 
loop at any one time." 

There can be no question but that the 
increased capacity of the loop, due to 
through routing, extension of platforms, 
etc., would be somewhere between 33 
per cent, as conceded by the South Side 
Elevated Railroad Company, and 43 per 
cent as shown by my report. 

As regards the second objection, it 
is my opinion that it is perfectly prac- 
ticable for one company to leave the ex- 
tra cars not required for return trips 
in the terminal yards of the other com- 
pany when, in accordance with the sched- 
ule, it is proper to lay up such cars or 
trains when they are at the terminal of 
the other company. It seems quite evi- 
dent that if the railroad companies 
wanted to through route, that these ob- 
jections of possible extra car miles and 
dead-heading of trainmen, etc., could be 
eliminated. 

As regards the third objection — uni- 
versal transfers. There is no doubt but 
what there is a limit to the average 
number of miles that a transportation 
company can carry people for a flat rate 
of five cents. No figures have been 
made by me to check the statements 
made by Mr. C. V. Weston, that in or- 
der to allow 70 per cent of the gross 
for operating expenses, provide for fixed 
charges and 6 per cent return on capi- 
tal stock that it would cost 6.95 cents 
per passenger carried and that upon 



this determination the average distance 
that his company could afford to haul 
passengers was 4% miles instead of 
6.6 miles, the present average. 

Granting that these statements and 
figures are true, no data has been pre- 
sented to show what the average num- 
ber of miles of haul would result from 
the institution of universal transfers. 
The statements made have been general, 
that the result could only be one of 
great financial loss. 

It is not clear to me at the present 
time what formula could be evolved to 
determine, with any degree of accuracy, 
what number of people would avail 
themselves of the privilege of universal 
transfer and what the average ride 
would be of such transferred passen- 
gers. 

In recommending vmiversal transfers 
it was believed by me that the major- 
ity of people patronizing the elevated 
lines had their objective point some- 
where in the vicinity of the downtown 
district and that the percentage of pas- 
sengers that would desire to transfer or 
through route would be small by com- 
parison, and that the net loss to the 
companies by granting these privileges 
would be small. 

It is evident that some such view of 
the situation must have been the con- 
clusion of the Northwestern Elevated 
Railroad Company officials, because it 
does not seem possible that they would 
be willing to through route and give 
universal transfers if it meant finan- 
cial ruin to their company. 

In considering this subject of service 
to be given to the public for five cents 
it must be admitted that there is a 
limit to the average haul that a- com- 
pany can render and do a profitable bus- 
iness, but it has been my belief that the 
introduction of universal transfers in 
Chicago, with the main business district 
centrally located and transportation ra- 
diating out in three general directions 
from that center, would not result in an 



June 22, 1908. 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



649 



average distance of passenger haul be- 
yond the limit of profitable operation to 
the companies. 

As regards the fourth statement— the 
looping of all trains. It is apparent to 
everyone that the City of Chicago will 
grow rapidly and eventually become a 
city of great magnitude, and, consequent- 
ly, in my judgment, it would be a great 
mistake to determine upon a plan that 
would perpetuate the present loop op- 
eration of the elevated trains. It is 
certain that the downtown business dis- 
trict must be enlarged and expanded, 
and to say the least, citizens living in 
the northerly part of the City should 
be permitted, on the payment of one 
fare, to ride at least to a point on the 
south that would mark the extreme limit 
of the business district; and the same 
privilege should be accorded to the 
South and West Side citizens that they 
may be permitted to ride, for one fare, 
from their homes to the extreme north 
or westerly limit, as the case may be, of 
the business district. 

In my judgment this privilege must 
be granted, and it is my belief in the 
granting of such privilege that the 
large majority of passengers who would 
avail themselves of the privilege of 
through routing or transfer would be 
represented by the people who would 
confine their travel to the area of such 
an enlarged business district, and with 
this view of the situation firmly fixed 
in my mind, it has been my belief that the 
granting of the universal transfer priv- 
ilege would not result in financial ruin 
to the elevated railroad companies. 

The net results are as follows : 

The Northwestern Elevated Railroad 
Company states that it is ready to 
through route and to concede univer- 
sal transfers, and it is stated by Mr. 
Mock, its representative, that he un- 
derstands that this position is concurred 
in by the management of the Lake Street 
Elevated Eailroad Company. 



The South Side Elevated Railroad 
Company will not through route for a 
flat fare of five cents, nor will it agree 
to universal transfers at a flat rate of 
five cents. 

The Metropolitan Elevated Railroad 
Company will not agree to a uni- 
versal transfer at a flat rate of five cents. 
The South Side Elevated Railroad 
Company and the Metropolitan Elevated 
Railroad Company contend that as great, 
or greater, capacity could be given the 
loop situation by separation of grades 
at intersections, extension of platforms, 
looping of all trains and the establish- 
ment of auxiliary stub terminals. 

I will be pleased to know what your 
further pleasure is in this matter.

upon, along and north of said Sixty-third Street; and. 

Whereas, A certain ordinance was passed by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago on March 30, 1908, entitled "An Ordinance authorizing the Calumet

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith an or- 
dinance passed by your Honorable Body 
at the meeting of the City Council held 
June 22, 1908, amending Sections 2015, 
2020 and 2025 of the Revised Municipal 
Code as applying to the business of run- 
ners to railroad trains, steam boats, etc., 
with the suggestion that the vote by 
which said ordinance was passed be re- 
considered by your Honorable Body with- 
out a formal veto and that said ordinance 
be sent back to the Judiciary Committee 
for further consideration. 

Representations have been made to me 
by various persons that unfair discrim- 
ination against certain persons is pos- 
sible under this ordinance. I have also 
received objections as to the legality of 
the ordinance, which objections appear to 
have been carefully considered, and which

are attached for the information of the 
Judiciary Committee. 

It seems to me better' to give this ordi- 
nance further consideration and to give 
everybody affected opportunity to be 
heard rather than to let it become ef- 
fective and subject the persons affected 
by it to the expense of testing it in the 
courts. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Fred A. Busse, 

Mayor, 

Aid. Mclnerney moved to reconsider 
the vote by which the ordinance referred 
to in the communication of His Honor, 
the Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed.

ordinance to the Committee on Judiciary. 
The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following communication, which 
was ordered published and placed on

Mayor's Office, 
Chicago, June 29, 1908. 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — For your information I 
transmit herewith a copy of a letter 
which I have this day sent to the Chair- 
man of the Local Transportation Com- 
mittee bearing on that Committee's con- 
sideration of the elevated railroad situa- 
tion. 

Respectfully, 

Fred A. Busse, 

Mayor. 

Chicago, June 29, 1908. 
Hon. Milton J. Foreman, Chairman, Com- 
mittee on Local Trnsportation, City 
of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — In view of the pending dis- 
cussion of the elevated railroad question 
and the relation of the elevated railroads 
to the public, and to one another', I take 
the liberty of giving the Committee on 



::} 



Local Transportation the views of the 
executive branch of the municipal gov- 
ernment on this problem as a means of 
promoting harmony and co-operation in 
dealing with it. 

I agree entirely with the stand taken 
by the Committee in regarding unified 
operation of all the elevated railroads as 
essential to the service the patrons of 
those roads have a right to expect. The 
people are interested primarily in getting 
good service. Through-routing, exchange 
of transfers. Union Loop congestion and 
all other questions affecting service are 
essentially questions of operation. These 
questions can be solved adequately only 
by the various companies getting to- 
gether and providing unity of operation 
of all the lines as one system. 

It is urged by many with great force 
that the transportation needs of the City 
as a whole will be best served by uni- 
fied operation of all transportation lines, 
both surface and elevated, as one sys- 
tem. Whether this will prove to be the 
correct final solution, the future will de- 
termine. It is certainly clear that the 
elevated companies should be r'equired 
to enter into an arrangement with one 
another to operate all the elevated roads 
of Chicago as a single property. 

I am unalterably opposed to grant- 
ing additional rights or privileges to the 
elevated companies until they combine 
to give their patrons better service and 
at the same time I favor quite as em- 
phatically the employment of every means 
at the City's disposal to compel them to 
improve their service. If it should be 
deemed necessary to take Council action 
now or in the near future for the im- 
mediate relief of patrons of the elevated 
r'oads, I would insist that such action be 
regarded only as a temporary expedient 
and should be taken without prejudice to 
the City's efforts taward unified service 
and all therein implied. 

I would suggest that your Commit- 
tee vigorously prosecute the full inquiry 
it has already undertaken into all the 



June 29, 1908. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



747 



rights and powers of the City of Chicago 
in its relation to the elevated railroad 
companies and I would suggest further 
that your Committee should formulate 
such a course of procedure as will en- 
able the City to enforce to the letter all 
of the contract obligations which these 
companies have undertaken in securing 
their existing franchises in the City of 
Chicago. 

The City has been patient in dealing 
with these elevated railroad companies 
but they have apparently shown no dis- 
position to co-operate with one another 
and with the City in bringing about 
improvements in the service. If they will 
not move unless forced by the City then 
the City must accept the task of forc- 
ing them. 

Trusting that I will have the full co- 
operation of your Committee in bringing 
this entire question to a head, I am 
Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Fred A. Busse, 

Mayor.

To the EonoraUe, the Mayor and the 

City Council: 

Gentlemen — It has been found that 
the construction of the Lawrence Avenue 
sixteen-foot conduit for the intercepting 
sewer system has caused the Standard 
Bench Monument No. 62 at the south- 
west corner' of Lawrence and Ashland 
avenues to settle from its previously es- 
tablished elevation above city datum. 
It will therefore be necessary to estab- 
lish a new elevation for the above men- 
tioned monument. 

The attached draft of ordinance, per- 
taining to same, has been approved by 



the Law Depar^ent, and I respectfully 
ask its passage. 

Very truly yours,

Department of Public Works,) 
Chicago, June 29, 1908. j" 
To the HonoraUe, the Mayor and City 
Council : 

Gentlemen — Referring to a resolu- 
tion passed by your Honorable Body 
June 1st, 1908, calling for an investi- 
gation and report regarding the accident 
caused by broken axle on the Chicago 
and Oak Park Elevated road at Lake 
street and Forty-third avenue May 28, 
1908, I beg to report that this matter 
was referred to Mr. Millard B. Hereley, 
Expert, Department of Local Transpor- 
tation, for investigation, and I am to-day 
in receipt of a letter from Mr. Hereley 
which r'eads as follows: 

* * * "This axle broke about 6 
inches inside of the car wheel at a 
point where the gearing is attached 
to the axle, and on investigation I 
find that the break shows defective 
material in the axle, and while this 
is exceptional anl unusual, I believe 
that the Company have no record of 
a similar break. The material, how- 
ever, on the surface looked all right, 
^ and I believe they are using the very 
best material that they can purchase 
for axles. 

"Their method of inspecting car 
axles and keeping a systematic record 
of the same is by putting their cars 
through the repair shops foi' a sys- 



tematic and general over -hauling inj 
every detail at the end of every 50,- 
000 miles. This means that the mo-j 
tors, armatures, gears, gear cases andj 
everything is dismantled and taken! 
apart, thoroughly examined and re-: 
paired, axles tested and put in first 
class shape. 

"In addition to this when wheels 
require turning the trucks are brought 
into the shops and motors and every 
part dismantled and the axles go again 
upon the testing block and carefully 
inspected. The wheels require turning 
on an average of about every 48,000 
to 60,000 miles. They keep a system- 
atic car mileage record as well as 
a wheel, axle and flange record. Every 
wheel is numbered and the record of 
inspection followed. 

"I believe they have adopted and 
are using the very best methods in this 
inspection work and in view of the 
fact that the fracture in this axle was 
just inside of the gear and cover'ed by 
it shows that it was not caused from 
crystalization or wear in the journal 
box, therefore, I believe it is one of 
those unavoidable accidents that will 
sometimes occur under the strictest 
inspection." * * * »

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 
The Committee on Local Transporta-

Chicago, June 29, 1908. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in City Council Assembled: 
Your Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion, to whom was referred (May 18, 
1908, page 261), certain communications 
suggesting the advisability of attaching 
high pressure water pipes to the elevated 
railroad structures, respectfully reports 
that the questions therein involved were 
referred to George Weston, Esquire, Con- 
sulting Engineer, who made a report 
thereon to the members of this commit- 
tee, and recommends that this communi- 
cation be printed in the Jour-nal of the 
City Council. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Milton J. Foreman, 

Chairman. 
Aid. Foreman moved to concur in the 
foregoing report. 

The motion prevailed. 



The following is the report of Mr. 
George Weston: 

Chicago, June 25, 1808. 
Col. Milton J. Foreman, Chairman Local 
Transportation Committee, Chicago, 
III.: 

Dear Sir — At a recent meeting of 
your Committee I was asked to report 
upon the practicability of attaching an 
18-ihch high pressure water main to the 
Union Elevated Loop structure in the 
downtown district, and beg to submit 
herewith the following: 

There is no question but what this 
high pressure water main could be at- 
tached to the elevated structure, but I 
question the practicability of the scheme. 
If this water main is carried by the exist- 
ing girders carrying the tracks of the 
company, brackets would have to be at- 
tached to these girders at intervals in 
order to support the pipe. There is no 
doubt but what the present girders have 
been designed to perform their work, 
using the allowable unit fibre stresses in 
the material, and the addition of this 
load to the girders would undoubtedly 
increase this allowable fibre stress to a 
point that would make it objectionable 
to the railroad company. 

It M'Ould undoubtedly be necessary to 
put in an additional light girder in order 
to properly support the pipe, and with- 
out going into very careful calculations 
it is my opinion that the cost of the ma- 
terial and labor necessary to prepare the 
structure to receive the pipe, including 
the necessary changes to the structure of 
the Elevated Road at its stations, etc., 
would cost from $40,000 to $50,000. 

There will be more or less vibration 
in the elevated structure due to passing 
trains, which would be distributed to the 
18-inch water main if the same is at- 
tached to the structure, particularly if it 
is attached to one of the track girders. 
There is no question but what this vi- 
bration will tend to produce leaky joints 
in this pipe — to what extent it is ditficult 



I

to estimate and probably could only be 
determined through actual practice. 

The pipe exposed to the varying tem- 
peratures would be subject to excessive 
strains due to expansion and contraction, 
which also would tend to affect the tight- 
ness of the joints. • 

Also the question of the water freezing 
during the winter time, when the tem- 
perature is low, is in my judgment a seri- 
ous objection to the installation of this 
water pipe on the elevated structure. 

I have not been able to determine what 
particular advantage will result from 
placing. this high pressure water main 
upon the elevated structure. It will cer- 
tainly cost a large amount of money, and 
the practicability of the scheme would be 
a great protection in the territory en- 
circled by the loop. I am of the opinion 
that the system could be placed to bet- 
ter advantage under the ground,— at less 
expense — and that when so located 
would be free from the many objections 
that would result from attaching the pipe 
to the elevated structure. 

Very respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Geo. Weston, 
Consulting Engineer.

poles placed temporarily in such position, as to insure proper and safe clear- 
ances from the construction work and equipment of the r'ailway and railroad com- 
panies, and to so continue in such temporary condition until such time as the con- 
struction work of the railway and railroad companies has reached such a stage 
that the wires can be run underneath the roadbeds and tracks of the r'ailway and 
railroad companies in conduits, the necessary easements so to do being properly 
secured, or to pass through the subways provided for in this ordinance. In the 
event it is contemplated by the companies or' corporations owning the wires to 
pass said wires through the subways in conduits, said conduits shall be entirely com- 
pleted, including all necessary manholes, prior to the time the railway and rail- 
road companies begin the work of paving the subways and approaches. In the

several depressed subways provided for in this ordinance by the construction of 
receiving basins properly located in or immediately adjacent to said subways, 
which said receiving basins shall be connected with and discharge their contents 
into the adjacent city sewers. Providing, that if no adjacent city sewers exist 
at the time when the said tracks shall be elevated and the said several subways 
constructed, such sewers as may be necessary to pr'operly drain said subways shall 
be constructed at the expense of the railway or railroad company, or companies, 
and the expense therefor shall be borne by the railway or railroad company, or 
companies, which ownsi or own the tracks crossing the said several subways 
drained and in the proportion to the number of tracks crossing such subways; 
and further, provided, that when any street in which a sewer was constructed by 
a railway or railroad company, or companies, is improved with a pavement, the 
total expense of constructing the sewer, as above provided, shall be assessed 
against the property benefitted and the amount paid by the railway or railroad 
company, or companies, over and above its or" their fair assessed proportion of 
the same shall be repaid to said railway or railroad company, or companies, and 
within the same time limit as shall be provided in the contract for making such 
improvements. In case, the lowest point of the surface of any of said subways 
should be below the grade of the adjacent sewer, some other adequate means of 
drainage satisfactory to the Commissioner of Public Works must be devised and 
provided by said railway and railroad companies at their expense.

531. Plate girders shall be proportioned either by the moment of inertia of their 
net section; or by assuming that the flanges are concentrated at their centers of 
gravity and a unit stress used such that the extreme fiber stress does not ex- 
ceed 16,000 lbs. per sq. in., in which case one-eighth of the gross section of the 
web, if properly spliced, may be used as flange section. 

The gross section of the compression flanges of plate girders shall not be less

from the top of the building to the foundations by a skeleton or framework of 
iretal or reinforced concrete. 

In metal frame skeleton construction the beams and girders shall be riveted to 
each other at their respective junction points. If columns made of rolled iron or 
steel are used, their different parts shall be riveted to each other, and the beams and

ALLOWABLE STRESSES AND SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE. 

535. Definition.] The term "reinforced concrete" means any combination of metal 
imbedded in concrete to form a structure so that the two materials assist each ; 
other to sustain all the stresses imposed. 

Permit.] Before a permit to erect any reinforced concrete structure is issued 
complete plans and specifications shall be filed with the Commissioner of Buildings, 
showing all details of the construction, including detail of working joints, the size I 
and position of all reinforcing rods, stirrups, etc., and giving the composition and 
proportion of the concrete. Provided, however, that pennission to erect any rein- 
forced concrete structure, does not in any manner accept the construction until after 
tests have been made of the actual construction to the satisfaction of the Com- | 
missioner of Buildings. 

536. Ratio of moduli of elasticity.] The calculations for the strength of rein- 
forced concrete shall be based on the assumed ultimate compressive strength per 
square inch given in the table below for the mixture to be used. | 

The ratio of the modulus of elasticity of steel to that of the different grades of I 
concrete shall be taken in accordance with this table: 

Ultimate Compressive

.50 



,80 



On plain flat bars, in which the ratio of the sides is not more than 2 to 1 

On twisted bars when the twisting is not less than 1 complete twist in eight 

diameters 

For specially formed bars.] For specially formed bars, the allowable unit stress 
for bond shall not exceed i^ the ultimate bond strength (without appreciable slip) 
of such bars deternjined by tests to the satisfaction of the Commissioner of Build- 
ings, but provided that in no case shall such allowable unit stress exceed 100 lbs. 
per square inch. 

538. Design.] Reinforced concrete slabs, beams and girders shall be designed in 
accordance with the following assumptions and requirements: 

(a) The common theory of flexure to be applied to beams and members re- 
sisting bending. 

(b) The adhesion between the concrete and the steel to be sufficient to make 
the two materials act together. 

(c) The steel to take all the direct tensile stresses. 

(d) The stress strain curve of concrete in compression is a straight line. 

(e) The ratio of the moduli of elasticity of concrete to steel as per table in 
Section 536. 

539. Moments of external forces.] Beams, girders, slabs and joists shall be cal- 
culated either as simply supported or as continuous in accordance with the actual 
and conditions and number of spans; when calculated continuous: 

1. The dead load moments shall be obtained from the actual dead load covering 
all spans at the same time. 

2. The live load moments over the supports shall be obtained from the live load 
covering all spans at the same time. 

3. The live load moments between the supports shall be the maximum obtained 
from the live load covering two consecutive or two alternate spans at the same time. 

4. When all spans are equal the live load bending moment at the middle of the 

span shall never be less than for intermediate spans, and for end 

12 10 

spans, and the sum of the live load bending moments over one support and at the 

W— 1^ 

center of the span, shall never be less than 

6 
Where w is the load per sq. ft. and where 1 is the length of span per lineal foot. 
In case of concentrated or special loadings, the moments and shears for the 
critical condition of loading shall be calculated and provided for. 

Span to be taken.] For freely supported slabs, the free opening plus the depth; 
for continuous slabs, the distance between centers of supports, is to be taken as the 
span. 

540. Web reinforcement.] Where the vertical shear measured on the section of a 
beam or girder between the centers of action of the horizontal stresses exceed 1/50 of 
the ultimate direct compressive stress per square inch, web reinforcement shall be 
supplied sufficient to carry the excess. The web reinforcement shall extend from top 
to bottom of beam and loop or connect to the horizontal reinforcement. The horizon- 



862

tal reinforcement carrying the direct stresses shall not be considered as web rein- 
forcement. 

Steel in compression.] When steel is used in the compression side of beams and 
girders, the rods shall be tied in accordance with requirements of vertical reinforced 
columns with stirrups connecting with the tension rods of the beams or girders. 

Location of reinforcing material.] All reinforcing steel shall be accurately lo- 
cated in the forms and secured against displacement; and inspected by the repre- 
sentative of the Architect or Engineer in charge before any surrounding concrete be 
put in place. It shall be afterwards completely enclosed by the contrate, and such 
steel shall nowhere be nearer the surface of the concrete than one and one-half 
(ly^) inches for columns, one and one-half (ly^) inches for beams and girders, and 
one-half (y^) inch, but not less than the diameter of the bar for slabs. For fireproof 
building see paragraph "Fireproof Concrete Construction." 

The longitudinal steel in beams and girders shall be so disposed that there 
shall be a thickness of concrete between the separate pieces of steel of not less than 
ly. times the maximum sectional dimension of the steel. 

Exposed metal of any kind will not be considered a factor in the strength of 
any part of any concrete structure, and a plaster finish applied over the metal shall 
not be deemed sufficient protection unless applied of sufficient thickness and so 
secured as to meet the approval of the Commissioner of Buildings. 

541. Limiting width of flange in T beams.] In the calculation of ribs a portion of 
the floor slab may be assumed as acting in flexure in combination with the rib. The 
width of the slab so acting is to be governed by the shearing resistance between 

rib and slab but in all cases limited to a width of S (1 ), and also limited 

to a width of L/3 and also limited to a width of % S. L=span of ribs between 
supports. S=distance center to center of ribs. No part of the slab shall be con- 
sidered as a portion of the rib unless the slab and rib are cast at the same time. 

542. Provision for shrinkage.] Shrinkage and thermal stresses shall be provided 
for by introduction of steel. 

543. Reinforced concrete columns— limit of length— per cent, of reinforcement- 
bending moment in columns tying vertical rods.] Reinforced concrete may be 
used for columns in which the ratio of length to least side or diameter does not ex- 
ceed 12 but in no case shall the cross section of the column be less than 64 square 
inches. Longitudinal reinforcing rods must be tied together to effectively resist out- 
ward flexure at intervals of not more than 12 times least diameter of rod and not 
more than 18". When compression rods are not required, reinforcing rods shall be 
used equivalent to not less than one-half of one per cent. (.005) of the cross sectional 
area of the column; provided, however, that the total sectional area of the rein- 
forcing steel shall not be less than 1 sq. in. and that no rod or bar be of smaller 
diameter or least dimensions than one-half (%) inch. The area of reinforcing com- 
pression rods shall be limited to 3 per cent of cross sectional area of the column. Ver- 
tical reinforcing rods shall extend upward or downward into the column above or 
below, lapping the reinforcement above or below enough to develop the stress in rod 
by the allowable unit for adhesion. When beams or girders are made monolithic with 
or rigidly attached to reinforced concrete column, the latter shall be designed to 
resist a bending moment equal to the greatest possible unbalanced moment in the 



1 



June 29, 1908. new business — by wards. 863 

beams or girders at the columns, in addition to the direct loads for which the columns 
are designed. 

544. When the reinforcing consists of vertical bars and spiral hooping, the con- 
crete may be stressed to 14 of its ultimate strength as given in table (536) ; provided 
that the amount of vertical reinforcing be not less than the amount of the spiral 
reinforcing nor greater than five (5) per cent, of the area within the hooping; 
that the percentage of spiral hooping be not less than one-half of one per 
cent., nor greater than 1%%; that the pitch of the spiral hooping be uniform and 
not greater than 1/10 of the diameter of the column, nor greater than 3"; that the 
spiral be secured to the verticals at every intersection in such a manner as to in- 
sure the maintaining of its form and position, that the verticals be spaced so that 
their distance apart, measured on the circumference be not greater than 9" nor i/g 
the circumference of the column within the hooping. In such columns the action 
of the hooping may be assumed to increase the resistance of the concrete equiva- 
lent to 21/2 times the amount of the spiral hooping figured as vertical reinforcement. 
No part of the concrete outside of the hooping shall be considered as a part of the 
effective column section. 

545. Structural steel columns.] When the vertical reinforcing consists of a struc- 
tural steel column of box shape, with lattice or batten plate of such a form as to per- 
mit its being filled with and encased in concrete, the concrete may be stressed to % 
of its ultimate strength as given in table in Section 513; provided that no shape of 
less than 1 sq. in. section be used and that the spacing of the lacing or battens be 
not greater than the least width of the columns. 

546. Curtain walls in skeleton construction buildings.] Buildings having a com- 
plete skeleton construction of steel or of reinforced concrete construction or a com- 
bination of both, may have exterior walls of reinforced concrete eight (8) inches thick; 
provided, however, that such walls shall support only their own weight, and that 
such walls shall have steel reinforcement of not less than 0.3 of 1% in each di- 
rection, vertically and horizontally, the rods spaced not more than 12" centers and 
wired to each other at each intersection. All bars shall be lapped for a length 
sufficient to develop their full stress for the allowable unit stress for adhesion. Ad- 
ditional bars shall be set around openings the verticals wired to the nearest horizon- 
tal bars, and the liorizontal bars at top and bottom of openings shall be wired to the 
nearest vertical bars. The steel rods shall be combined with the concrete and placed 
where the combination will develop the greatest strength, and the rods shall be 
staggered or placed and secured so as to resist a pressure of thirty (30) lbs. per 
sq. foot, either from the exterior or from the interior on each and every square 
foot of each wall panel. 

547. Bending of steel.] Steel having a diameter of 34 of an inch or less shall be 
capable of bending cold 90 degrees over a diameter equal to twice the thickness 
of the piece without fracture; steel over %" in diameter shall be capable of bending 
cold 90 degrees over a diameter equal to three times the diameter of the piece. 

Elongation of steel.] The material of reinforcement shall be such form that it 
will not elongate under working stress to exceed 1/500. 

Painting of steel is to be omitted.] Reinforcing steel used in reinforcing con- 
crete construction shall not be painted, but shall be free from all mill scale and loose 
rust. 

548. Cement.] Only Portland cement shall be used in reinforced concrete con-

struction. All cement shall be tested in car load lots when delivered, or in 
quantities equal to the same. Cement failing to meet the requirements of the ac- 
celerated test will be rejected. 

Accelerated test.] Pats of neat cement will be allowed to harden 24 hours in 
moist air, and then be submitted to the accelerated test as follows: A pat is exposed 
in any convenient way in an atmosphere of steam, and above boiling water in a 
loosely closed vessel, for three hours, after which before the pat cools, it is placed 
m the boiling water for five additional hours. To pass this test satisfactorily, the 
pats shall remain firm and hard, and show no signs of cracking, distortion or dis- 
integration. 

Cement tests.] Portland cement when tested, shall have a minimum tensile 
strength as follows: Neat cement after one day in moist air shall develop a ten- 
sile strength of at least 200 lbs. per sq. inch; after one day in air and six days in 
water shall develop a tensile strength of at least 500 lbs. per square inch, and 
after one day in air and 27 days in water shall develop a tensile strength of at 
least 600 lbs. per square inch. Cement and sand tests composed of one part of 
cement and three parts of sand shall after one day in air and six days in water 
develop a tensile strength of at least 175 lbs. per sq. inch; and after one day in 
air and 27 days, in water, shall develop a tensile strength of at least 240 lbs. per 
square inch. 

Cement certificate.] A certificate that the cement used has been tested and has 
met the requirements of Section 548 of this Chapter and that the tests have been 
made in accordance with the standard methods prescribed by the American Society 
for Testing Materials, shall be furnished by the Architect or Engineer in charge to 
the Commissioner of Buildings. 

549. Sand.] The sand to be used for concrete shall be clean coarse sand, free 
from loam or dirt. 

Stone.] The stone to be used in concrete shall be a clean crushed hard stone or 
gravel of a size to pass through a two inch square mesh. If limestone is used, 
it shall be screened to remove all dust; if gravel is used it shall be thoroughly 
washed. Stone shall be drenched immediately before using. 

Mixing.] All concrete shall be mixed in a mechanical batch mixer except when 
limited quantities are required, or when the conditions of the work make hand 
mixing preferable; hand-mixing to be done only when approved by the Commissioner 
of Buildings. In all mixing the separate ingredients shall be measured for each batch 
and shall be thoroughly mixed and must be uniform in color, appearance and consis- 
tency before placing. 

Placing.] In filling in concrete around reinforcing steel, the concrete must be 
worked continuously with suitable tools, as it is put in plaoe. Filling the forms 
completely and puddling afterward will not be permitted. In placing the con- 
crete the work shall be so laid out that partly set concrete will not be subjected to 
shocks from men wheeling or handling material over it. 

550. Concrete in freezing weather.] When concreting is carried on in freezing 
weather, the material must be heated, and such provisions made that the con°- 
crete can be put in place without freezing. The use of frozen, lumpy sand, or stone 
depending on hot water used in mixing to thaw it out will not be permitted. All 
reinforced concrete shall be kept at a temperature above' freezing for at least 48 
hours after being put in place. All forms under concrete so placed to remain until

day included, during the first week after being put in place. 

Cement finish.] Cement finish added to the top of slabs, beams, or girders shall 
not be calculated in the strength of a member unless laid integrally with the rough 
concrete. No higher unit stress shall be allowed on such cement finish than on the 
body. 

551. Fireproof, concrete construction.] Reinforced concrete construction will be 
accepted for fireproof buildings if designed as prescribed in this paragraph: The 
aggregate for such concrete shall be be clean, broken stone or clean screened gravel, 
together with clean, coarse sand; stone or gravel shall be of a size to pass through 
a "screen of three-quarter inch square mesh. The minimum thickness of concrete 
surrounding the reinforcing members of reinforced concrete beams and girders shall 
be two (2) inches on the bottom, and one and one-half (IVa) inches on the sides of 
said beams and girders. The minimum thickness of concrete under slab rods shall 
be one (1) inch; and all reinforcement in columns to have a minimum protection of 
two (2) inches of concrete. Provided, if a supplementary metal fabric is placed in 
the concrete surrounding the reinforcing, simply for holding the concrete, the thick- 
ness of concrete under the reinforcing may be reduced by one-half (Vs) inch, such 
fabric shall not be considered as reinforcing metal. 

552. Removal of Forms.] The time at which props and shores may be safely re- 
moved from under floors and roofs will vary with the condition of the weather, but 
in no case should they be removed in less than two weeks, provided that column 
forms shall not be removed in less than four days; provided further, that the center- 
ing from bottom of slabs and sides of beams and girders may be removed after the 
concrete has set one week, if the floor has obtained sufficient hardness to sustain 
the dead weight of the said floor, and that no load or weight shall be placed on any 
portion of the construction when the said centers have been removed. 

553. Tests.] The contractor for the reinforced concrete construction shall be pre- 
pared to make load tests on any portion of the work within a reasonable time after 
erection, as often as may be required by the Commissioner of Buildings. Such tests 
must be made to meet the approval of the Commissioner of Buildings, and must 
show that the construction will sustain a load twice the sum of the live and dead 
loads for which it was designed, without any sign of failure. The construction may 
be considered as part of the test load. Each test load shall cover two or more 
panels and shall remain in place at least twenty-four hours. The deflection 
of slabs under the full slab test load at the expiration of twenty-four hours shall not 
exceed one -eight -hundredths of the span. The deflection of girders under the full 
girder test load at the expiration of twenty-four hours shall not exceed one-eight-hun- 
dredths of the span multiplied by the ratio of slab depth to girder depth. These tests 
are to be considered not as tests of design or material, but as tests of workmanship. 

554. Cinder concrete.] Cinder concrete construction may be used for all buildings 
in which fireproof construction is mandatory by this Chapter, or where ordinary 
construction, mill construction or slow burning construction may be used. 

Only clean, thoroughly burnt, steam boiler cinders, free from matter other than 
cinders, may be used. The cinders used shall be of such size that they will pass 
through a l"xl" mesh. Cinder concrete shall not be used for columns, piers or walls.

. The ultimate compressive strength per square inch of cinder concrete shall be! 
taken as not exceeding 700 lbs. The ratio of the modulus of elasticity of steel divided ' 
by the modulus of elasticity of cinder concrete shall be taken as 30. i 

^ There shall be not less than one part of Portland cement to seven parts of ^ 
cinders and sand in cinder concrete. All other special requirements and methods of I , 
calculation for reinforced concrete as required in this Chapter shall modify and regu- ' 
late the use of cinder concrete in buildings. 

For fireproof construction, the minimum thickness of cinder concrete covering 1 
on structural metal shall be the same as required for brick or concrete covering for 
fireproof buildings by this Chapter. In slow burning or mill construction buildings 
the mmimum thickness of cinder concrete covering on structural metal shall be 2" 
on columns and ly/' on beams, girders and other structural steel or iron members. 

Wherever cinder concrete is used for the covering of columns, beams, girders or 
other structural steel members of a building, the cinder concrete covering shall have 
metal binders, or wire fabric imbedded in and around said columns, beams, girders 
or other structural steel members. If wire is used for said metal binders it shall i 
not be smaller than No. 8 gauge wire and shall be spaced not less than 16 inches i 
apart along the length of the steel member covered. ' 

Where cinder concrete construction is used for a building which, by this chapter : 
IS required to be of fireproof construction all parts that carry weights or resist 
strams, all exterior walls, all interior walls, all interior partitions, all stairs and all : 
e evator mclosures shall be made entirely of incombustible material, and in which i 
all metallic structural members are protected against the effects of fire by cinder I 
concrete proportioned, mixed applied and secured as herein described. | 

Wood nailing strips for floor surfacing may be used in buildings of fire proof I 
construction; provided, however, that such nailing strips shall be imbedded ^s de- 
scribed m Section 583 of this chapter. 

The partitions in buildings of cinder concrete construction shall be as described ' 
in Section 582 of this chapter for partitions in fireproof buildings; provided, however i 
that partitions may be built wholly of metal studding, metal lath and plaster, but i 
no such partitions shall be of a less thickness than one and one-half inch The I 
partitions around stairs, or stair halls, or shafts, or elevators, or public lavatories ' 
shall be wedged tight between the structure of the floors and ceilings, or if such 
partitions are of plaster, the metal or metal studding shall be secured to the struc- i 
ture by clips, bolts or other metal fastening, and in no case shall any such partition f 
be built on the wood flooring or wood nailing strips. ; 

The inclosing walls, the covering of exterior side of mullions, beams, girders, ' 
Imtels, the mclosure of pipes, pipe shafts, the doors into shafts, windows into shafts, ' 
covering of girders, covering of trusses, cutout boxes, chases, stairs, landings, paint- i 
mg, rivets, bolts and all other items required in these sections on fireproof con- 
struction and in these sections on skeleton construction shall, in buildings of cinder | 
concrete construction be designed or built or covered, or made of the material called 1^ 
for, or any one or a number of these requirements, as described in such sections \% 
describing the requirements of skeleton construction or of fireproof construction in 
this chapter; provided, however, that cinder concrete as described herein may be i 
used for all protective covering of structural metal. 

In places where there is trucking or wheeling, or handling of packages of anv 
kind, the lower five feet of every column shall be incased in a protective covering 
such as is described in Section 573.

If cinder construction is used in a building which is required to be slow burning 
or mill construction by this chapter, then all partitions shall be of incombustible 
material and all other parts of the building as required for slow burning or mill 
construction buildings by this chapter. 

EXPLANATION. 

(The Section of existing Code having numbers 117-268, 912-511, 914-513, 916- 
515, shall be amended as set forth below : ) 

(Old number 912-511), New number 563, (Columns— exterior). All iron or steel 
used as a vertical supporting member of the external construction of any building 
exceeding sixty feet in height shall be protected as against the effects of external 
changes of temperature, and of fire, by a covering of fireproof material consisting of 
at least four inches of brick, or of four inches of concrete, or of four inches of 
burnt clay tile, or of four inches of hollow terra cotta, or of a combination of any two 
of these materials, provided that their combined thickness is not less than four 
inches. The thickness of four inches shall be measured from the extreme projections 
of the metal of the column proper; provided, however, that brackets not part of the 
structural column but connected to the same for the purpose of carrying column 
protection in each story may project within two inches of the face of such column 
covering. 

"Where stone or other incombustible material is used for the exterior facing of 
a building the distance between the back of the facing and the extreme projections 
of the metal of the column proper shall be at least four inches, and this four-inch 
space shall be filled with one of the fireproof materials. 

In all cases, the brick or burnt clay, tile or terra cotta if used as a fireproof 
covering, shall be bedded in cement mortar close up to the iron or steel members, 
and all joints shall be made full and solid. 
(Part in black face type above is new.) 

(Old number 914-513), New number 565,— (Spandril beams, girders, lintel). The 
metal of the exterior side of the spandril beams or spandril girders of exterior walls, 
or lintels or exterior walls, which support a part of exterior walls, shall be covered 
in the same manner, and with the same material as specified for the exterior columns 
in this chapter; provided, however, that shelf angles connected to girders by brackets 
or projections of girder flanges not figured as part of the flange section, may come 
within two inches of the face of the brick or other covering of such spandril beams, 
girders or lintels. The covering thickness shall be measured from the extreme pro- 
jection of the metal in every case. 

(Part in black face type above is new.) 

(Old number 916-515), New Number 567,— (Iron or steel plates for support of 
wall.) If iron or steel plates or angles are used in each story for the support of 
the facings of the walls within such story, such plates or angles shall be of suffi- 
cient strength to carry the weight within the limits of fibre stress for iron and 
steel elsewhere specified in this chapter, the enveloping material for such story, 
and such plates or angles may extend to within two inches of the exterior of such 
covering. SUch steel plates, angles or other shapes may be connected to the girders, 
beams or columns by brackets. 

(Part in black face type above is new.) 

(Number 117-268), (Floors— display of placard indicating strength of). It shall 
be the duty of the owner of every building of Class I, already constructed, or hers-

after to be constructed, or of his agent, or of the occupant or person in possession i 
charge or control of the same, to affix and display conspicuously on each floor of such i 
building a placard stating the load per square foot of floor surface which may with 
safety be applied to that particular floor, or, if the strength of different parts of 
any floor varies, then there shall be such placards for each varying part of such 
floor. It shall be unlawful to load any such floors, or any part thereof, to a greater ( 
extent than the load indicated upon such placards. It shall be the duty of occupants i 
of buildings to maintain such placards during their occupation of the premises and ' 
the owners of buildings, or their agents, to cause the same to be properly affixed ' 
with each change of occupation. It shall be part of the duty of architects of all 
buildings to calculate the figures for such placards, which are to be verified and 
approved by the Commissioner of Buildings before they are affixed upon the re 
spective floors of the different buildings. 

The calculations and loads shall be in accordance with the foUowing- The joists 
shall be figured to cany the full dead and full live load indicated on the placard- the ' 
girders shall be figured to carry the full dead and not less than 85 per cent of the live 
load indicated on the placard. The columns shall be figured to carry the full dead and 
not less than the percentage of the live load indicated on the placard given in table 
Sec. 502. There shall be clear alleys or portions of floors left unloaded or the 
loads shall be reduced from that indicated on the placards in such manner that the i 
unit stress in any part of the construction shall not exceed the allowed unit stress ' 
for that material as given in this chapter. 

When it is desired to arrange or distribute the loads in some special manner | 

th« architect of the building shall make a plan showing the safe loading in the I 

different spaces loaded; this plan shall be approved by the Commissioner of Build> | 

ings and affixed in a conspicuous position on the floor in question. In such a case no i 

part of the floor shall be considered as loaded with a less load than may be actually j 
brought on it or in any case with less than 30 pounds per square foot.

Wheeeas, Darkness is conducive to | 
crime, and it is a crime not to use i 
that which nature has placed at our : 
doors, and 

Whereas, The recent murder in the : A 
loop district has demonstrated that ' 
even in the center of the busiest spot 
in the world a little more light might 
have prevented a most daring crime, 
and 

Whereas, There is now at our ser- , 
vice the power of the Drainage Canal 
for electric light, therefore 

The City Electrician and the Finance : 
Committee are requested to hasten the ' 
work of installing the new electric I 
light service in order that the streets i 
and alleys of the entire city may soon I 
be lighted with electricity, thereby I 
reducing the danger to the lives of ' 
our citizens and visitors, and making | 
good the claim that as soon as the ' 
drainage canal power could be fur- | 
nished to the city, Chicago would be I 
the best lighted city in the world. |
